This is a spin off from the "how do you apply your gel" thread.
Many of us were discussing how without product and styling our hair will revert to being nearly straight. We were also discussing how we felt like wavy imposters since our hair doesn't form waves without encouragement and how many of us didn't always consider our hair wavy.

Just cause you need more to make it come through, doesn't mean you aren't wavy. There are all sorts of degrees of texturization within any wave/curl spectrum.
